Rockin' block talkin'

This was taken Thursday, January 24 2008. Tobin is 20 months old. We think he's pretty amusing. We would love for your to share your reactions in the comments on this post.

Tobin's Aunt Sarah and Uncle Dan brought bubbles [and a bubble-blowing bear] to Louisville for Christmas. Tobin loved them. He would hit them with a bat sometimes, chase them, and catch them on his tongue [OK, that only happened once]. His mom tried to get him to say "bubble" for the camera. Here are her ultimately successful results:

Remember this?

New Tobin
I've uploaded a few old pictures from my cell phone at Flickr. I've been a little slow on the uptake with getting my cell phone pictures over to Flickr--just figured it out a couple of months ago. Anyway, I took some time to send some of my favorites from the past year and a half, so that they can be saved for posterity, or whatever.

This particular may be my favorite of all time because it was taken by Matt with my camera phone the morning after T's birth. It was the first glimpse most of our loved ones saw of Tobin Lee. I think it captures so beautifully what we were seeing: our angelic, bright-eyed, golden, perfect little boy. I almost tear up every time I see it.

The other pictures are ones that have been favorites of ours that we've never shared. So, please enjoy.

Christmas with Tobin

If you go back in time on this blog, you'll see that I posted video of Tobin's first Christmas on the 26th of December 2006. I think we can all agree that's an impossibly high standard. Even though Holiday-2006 Matt makes Holiday-2007 Matt look bad, you should go back and watch the old video after this new one (or vice versa).

I really enjoyed putting this together. I hope you enjoy watching it.

So how was your year?

While I still don't have a video to post for you yet, I've made some progress in sharing with you more of our recent North American tour (also known as Christmas season 2007). Before that, I thought you might like to see how much Tobin has changed in the last year. The first picture was taken December 24, 2006. The one immediately below it was taken December 24, 2007. Since Allison and I live with T year-round, it takes this kind of contrast to make me realize just how much he's grown. See for yourself: it's been a busy year at our house.Until I upload video, please enjoy our pictures on our flickr site.

We'll feel up to posting holiday photos and videos soon, I'm sure. We arrived home yesterday after 13 days of traveling, including driving over 2,000 miles from here to Florida to Kentucky and back. We loved our time with family and were blessed as usual by their generosity. But, for now, we're a little tired.

We wish all of you a blessed and happy 2008. And you'll hear more from us soon.
